Never skimp on sunscreens, especially during summer. Sunscreens are superheroes that protect your skin from sun damage like pigmentation, sunburn, and an uneven skin tone. Go for a sunscreen that’s non-greasy and light, and slather generously, every two hours, for maximum protection. Remember, always choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30+ that gives UVA and UVB protection.

This summer, introduce your skin to its new best friend – a face wash. With sweat and oil hijacking your pores, breakouts are inevitable. Exactly why a face wash is a must. Not only will it clean your skin of impurities and unclog pores, but it will keep you feeling fresher for longer. It’s wise to opt for lighter formulations to keep up with the rising temperatures.
Our summer pick – Himalaya Purifying Neem Foaming Face Wash
Summer means sporting a greasy mop of hair more often than not. That’s because the heat makes us sweat more, and our body produces more sebum, making the hair oily. But with the right shampoo, you don’t have to deal with bad hair days anymore. Shampooing cleans hair and scalp off impurities and grime, to keep it looking great even on the steamiest of days. Choose a mild, paraben-free shampoo to keep your hair summer-ready, always.

The heat can zap your hair of moisture and make it look dull, dry, and lifeless. Moreover, dry hair tends to get frizzy, which leads to breakage. It’s time to put to stop to this domino effect and recharge your hair with a generous dose of hydration with hair masks. Not only will it replenish your thirsty strands but it will also protect them from the ravages of the heat.
Our summer pick – Mamaearth Hair Mask (Argan)
The sweltering heat brings with it the sheer dread of sweaty armpits and body odour. While cold showers may give temporary relief, what you need is something that keeps you fresh and sweat-proof for longer. That’s why deodorant is so essential. It helps mask body odour, leaving you smelling as pleasant as ever. Also, choose breathable fabrics like cotton, linens, chambrays will help you look cool, and stay cool all summer long.

Compact powders or pressed powder are a summer delight. These not only absorb oil and keep the shine in check, but they also leave the skin with a flawless, matte finish giving it a stunning sun-kissed glow. Moreover, they’re easy to carry, they allow the skin to breathe, and just a quick dab can get rid of the nasty shine. Go for one that is also infused with SPF to keep your skin well-protected all through summer.
